Anaplastic Ependymoma


An anaplastic ependymoma, also called an ependymal tumor, is a type of brain tumor that arises from the ependyma, a tissue of the central nervous system. Ependymomas may also form in the choroid plexus (ventricles of the brain). Anaplastic refers to cancer cells that divide rapidly and have little or no resemblance to normal cells.
